How weird

Last week I weighed myself at the gym on one of those scales that you pay 50p and it gives you a print out. Was gutted to find out I had put on 3lbs over the previous couple of weeks despite the fact that I had been training consistently.

This week I have mixed up the training a bit and exercised on 6 days out of the last 8 days. I have ran on the treadmill using the random hills and the interval programmes, swam, tried a spinning class and done some strength excercises. All a radical departure to just plodding.

Anyway, according to the same scales I have lost 7lbs this week!

Is this possible?

keep an excefrise FMS and the see what works for you best, then release it and make it millions.....

diet any different this week?

Perfectly normal - your body weight can fluctuate a lot, which is why if you're going to weigh yourself regularly it needs to be on the same set of scales at the same time on the same day.

I think weight randomly fluctuates. Personally, I hate scales. If my jeans start cutting off circulation to my feet, then I know it's time to cut back

Well done on all the exercise though! I think I might follow your example.

I went on a weight/height machine at the gym,

Was informed that at 5FT 6INCH and 16 stone i was obese, however i'm 6ft 3 &15 stone. So where the other half of me has gone who knows? (falls over again as i get out the chair)

Don't even bother with the scales know, exercise and eat resonably healthy, all i can do.
